      "100 Word Rant"
      by Dave Maleckar

      Skepticism is to Cynicism
      As Doubt is to ... ?

      Truth is to fact as faith is to knowledge as
      hope is to optimism. You can know a fact; you
      can only glimpse a truth. A fact is like a stick
      of lumber. Complete, nailed down, utilitarian.
      You can turn it over and pass it around and
      examine it from every angle. But a truth is
      alive, a cool toad between cupped palms. You
      just barely get to peek at it through a gap
      between your fingers. Open too wide and it's
      gone. Squeeze too tight and you kill it. And it
      will more than likely pee in your hand.

      I came across this today in Funny Times, a monthly newspaper I've been subscribed to for a few years now. It struck me as particularly dao-resonant.
